Yep... Sar B6p comes to mind. Both models can usually be had around the $250 Mark.

I noticed that listings on GB are tapering off too. I'm wondering if this is a death rattle for JA?

I suppose they'll sell enough guns to stay in business. They probably have very
few employees, and they're well established with what they're doing.
It'd be nice if they'd shake things up a bit. Selling guns to undiscriminating
pawn & gun shops is hardly the best business model. I still like the JA22 and
I'd like for it not to go the way of the Raven.
Given the way things are it'd be easy to imagine them reaching some tipping
point.
But I'm just guessing.
When I see five weirdos dressed in togas stabbing a guy in the middle of the park in full view of a hundred people, I shoot the bastards. That's my policy.

probably bee that 22 target version of the bryco 48 that was supposed to come out 100 years ago.

Personally i would be happy with the t380 in 32acp or the JA32 in 22lr.

Jimenez has 3 decent guns. the JA22, JA25, and JA32. The rest are crap that wears out faster than dollar store screwdrivers.

They need to fix their exhisting guns before throwing out new products. The JA380, T380, and JA nine would all be solid guns if they would beef them up in a few critical areas. Those guns are some of their biggest sellers and pissed of consumers are what give the entire product line a bad name bringing down sales across the board.

Take cobra for instance.... they revamped older existing guns and ramped up the durability. Now they have a fairly solid lineup. the only real questionable gun is the ca380 but there is not much they can do with that gun short of redesigning the barrel hood on the frame... which in turn means another slide modification. Might as well just scrap and make a new gun....hence the denali. i still wish they would bring back the lorcin l25 and l9. The L9 was a beast of a gun. a little beefing up of the slide and tweeking of the frame for ergonomics and that gun would be a winner. The l25 was also a neat little 25acp that mainly suffered due to a few areas. L22 would be a good gun as well with a little attention. I challenge anyone to find better ergonomics on any SNS pistol than the L22 and L32/380 pistols.

Pheonix is the most ridiculous. they dumped the raven which is the standard for reliability, simplicity, and durability in exchange for the highly over complicated and fragile design of the HP22/25 in possibly the biggest dope decisions in the history or SNS manufacturers. They could have taken that gun and did a whole host of things to it to keep sales going....target versions, 22lr versions, polymer frame, threaded barrels, special editions etc. etc. But nope this HP22/25 with its cracking frame and slide is going to be a winner! my guess is that they still have the tooling just sitting in some warehouse somewhere. what a shame.

Hmm,wonder if it,and the patent would be for sale...lol,talk about an epic group buy....I'll throw in a grand on the tooling but operations would have to be set up in Houston...lots of local warehouse space,I'd pay rent of course...maybe I'll give em a call see if they'll gimme a price..not to many of us...5% of profits sound good to any potential "investors"?.
